The first thing I noticed was how smooth and creamy the Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil was. It was so much easier to scoop out of the jar than other brands I’ve used. When I smoothed it onto my skin, it didn’t leave any greasy residue behind. It really is the best coconut oil I’ve used.
If you haven’t yet ventured into the world of coconut oil and aren’t sure what exactly to use coconut oil for, there are literally hundreds of uses. Here are some of my favorites:
Cooking and Baking
To use coconut oil in cooking or baking, simply replace the oil or butter the recipe calls for with coconut oil. If the recipe calls for a liquid oil or melted butter, just melt the coconut oil before adding it to the recipe. If the recipe calls for butter or shortening in a solid state, use the coconut oil in its solid state as well.

Personal Care Products
- Toothpaste (pictured above)
- Body Scrubs, like my favorite Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrub
- Moisturizer-just use it as is in place of your regular moisturizer, or add some essential oils for scent.
